Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you.Just a few questions to get a good picture of what I'm dealing with. how hot is the temp when this happens, what grade od fuel you using, how old is the battery and how long ago have you had the tune up done?
good for you surviving the trade that long I just retired this Feb my self but still like to get my hands dirty between fishing lol. What we found if it is heat soak related is a couple of things to try and both are fuel related. the high heat creates air or vapors forming in the fuel system and the things you can try are going to a higher octane in these hotter days also using a good octane booster . also in some cases picking up some bad or stale fuel can do this as well as moisture in the system. so there are a few options you may try to address the problem and from what you describe that may be the issue. also check your battery for reserve power when hot while cranking do a load test and starter draw test on it. Hope this gives you some things ti try and resove your issue and if you rquire further assistance I;ll be happy to do so. Good luck.
yea disconnecting sensors does that and more, makes the engine run in fail safe .For the price of that sensor you can replace it it may have lost some of it's value over the years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIfWG3V1_Zg also the air flow sensor has a built in thermistor in it which can act up , you can try cleaning it but if that don't work try another. I sent you a link on cleaning the air flow sensor'
ok I did more research on this ans have a few things you can try. lets try a phone chat might be easier to work out. up to you.
